People on Tiritiri


Mary-Ann Rowland

Mary-Ann manages the shop and the guiding operation on Tiritiri. 

Along with the DoC ranger on duty, she helps to welcome the daily visitors as they disembark and then matches them with a suitable walk and a guide.

She co-ordinates our volunteers who operate the shop and lead the guided walks, organizes their training and provides them with regular updates on what's happening on the Island.

David Jenkins

Dave is one of our two permanent Department of Conservation rangers. He has vast experience of the Island and carries out a huge range of tasks in his busy working day.


Picture coming soon!

Mathew Mold

Matt became our second permanent Department of Conservation ranger in January 2016.


Barbara and Ray Walter

Ray was the last resident lighthouse keeper on Tiritiri and became our first ranger, soon to be joined by Barbara. The contribution made by these two in the foundation of Tiritiri as an open reserve, in the planting programme and the visitor experience, has created a legacy which will surely last as long as the Island itself.

Jim Battersby

Jim was the founding chairperson of the Tiritiri Matangi Supporters (SoTM). His drive and foresight has contributed to the successful organisation that we are today. 

Brian Chandler

Brian is the current chairperson of the Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi. He leads an enthusiastic set of committee members and likes to get involved in the practical work on the Island.

Barbara Hughes 

Barbara is our Educator. She started work on 17th January 2013 and will work closely with Mary-Ann on our school visits programme.

Barbara, who is a biology teacher herself, interacts closely with school staff and students. The aim is to increase the value of school visits, and hopefully attract more, by linking them closely to the curriculum.
